History

ZPhiB_Seal_2013Our Sorority

At the height of the Harlem Renaissance and the Great Depression, five coeds envisioned a sorority which would directly affect positive change, chart a course of action for the 1920s and beyond, raise consciousness of their people, encourage the highest standards of scholastic achievement, and foster a greater sense of unity among its members.  These women believed that sorority elitism and socializing overshadowed the real mission for progressive organizations and failed to address fully the societal mores, ills, prejudices, and poverty affecting humanity in general and the black community in particular.  Since its inception, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated has continued its steady climb into the national spotlight with programs designed to demonstrate concern for the human condition both nationally and internationally.
